Complete Cyber-safety Program
Accredited by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner, developed in partnership with Google Australia, The Australian Federal Police and aligned to the Australian National Curriculum, CyberEcho is the leading education program in the country for the teaching of cyber-safety.
CyberEcho has been designed to be compatible across multiple devices, incorporating lessons both offline and online in a learning management system that allows for teacher directed, interactive activities and online assessment that is individually managed by the classroom teacher.
The slogan, ‘What you share will always be there’ underpins the program and each lesson teaches children key strategies to help keep them safe online. CyberEcho aims to raise awareness of online safety issues as well as building and reinforcing skills, attitudes and behavioural traits for positive online interaction by addressing online relationships verses real life relationships, social networking, online grooming, protecting personal information, mechanisms for reporting, communicating positively online and creating a positive digital footprint.
CyberEcho is a blended learning program for children aged 8-12 and has been piloted in 6 schools nationally. The Australian National Curriculum and teacher and student feedback, together with feedback from the Australian Federal Police, helped inform the content of the program.
